Right Wing Blogger Chuck C. Johnson Suspended From Twitter for Posting a Private Address

Smear merchant shut down

Wingnut smear merchant Chuck C. Johnson can’t say I didn’t warn him:

What happened: our pal Chuck decided he needed to post the private street address where he said someone who was exposed to the Dallas Ebola patient lived. Then he followed up by threatening to post the names and addresses of children he said were also exposed.

We don’t know for sure this was why Chuck’s account was suspended by Twitter, but it’s probable, since Twitter’s rules on this are very clear:

Private information: You may not publish or post other people’s private and confidential information, such as credit card numbers, street address or Social Security/National Identity numbers, without their express authorization and permission.

Get ready for a massive groundswell of support from the right wing for their boy Chuck, wrongly persecuted by the commie liberals at Twitter. “WE’RE ALL CHUCK JOHNSON NOW!”

Chuck has confirmed the reason for his suspension. In a post written by someone else so he’ll look more professional, Johnson whines that it was all a plot by “far-left wing trolls” to silence him and stop him from performing his courageous journamalism:

Johnson continued: “The move to report me to Twitter and thereby suspend the account was a vindictive one done by far-left wing trolls who would rather see Americans sick with ebola than have journalists do the necessary job of informing the public.

“I’m amused that so many people would think the GOP establishment as capable enough to silence me,” Johnson joked.

Johnson is also seeing a silver lining. “In the hours or days before Twitter restores my account I’ll have more opportunities to focus on Gotnews and my book which is due later this month. My wife will be pleased that I don’t have the time suck of Twitter to distract me from other pursuits.”

In the meantime, he encourages his supporters to contact Twitter @support and ask for his reinstatement. “I’m very taken by all the supporters who are calling me, emailing me, and tweeting about me,” Johnson said. “Thank you for all you do.”

Guess who Chuck is now blaming for getting him suspended? GotNews Founder Charles Johnson Got No Twitter.

After reporting the address of a Dallas woman under quarantine for the Ebola virus, gotnews.com editor-in-chief Charles Johnson has been suspended from Twitter. The social media site deems it a “violation” to post the private and confidential information of others. Johnson’s punishment, according to a story published on his site Tuesday afternoon, is that he has to read “Twitter Rules” and say he understands them. Twitter will then remove the offending tweet and reinstate him.

The woman is Youngor Jallah, who was caring for Thomas Eric Duncan, who has the virus. “She took care of him,” Johnson told The Mirror in a phone conversation Tuesday afternoon. “She carried his Ebola-infested blanket. I reported that they’ve (authorities) have abandoned her. I reported her address on Twitter. All these lefty trolls flipped out and said I needed to be suspended.”

Among those “lefty trolls,” explains Johnson, was another Charles Johnson, who apparently hates him and aided in his suspension.

And Chuck’s account has now been restored, after he deleted his tweet with the private address and told Twitter he understood their rules.

And right on cue, Chuck is now talking about suing Twitter.
